Candy Cane /Largo

Hey Candy Cane is the name, snuggling is the game. I love, love, love my human. I came to VIP Rescue, as owner surrender,  blind and 13 years old. VIP had one of my nasty painful eyes removed, and I feel like a champ.  I get really excited when I hear my foster Mom’s voice when she gets home. I love being next to you! I am a senior of 13 years, but in poodle years that’s nothing.  I’m up to date on my shots, micro chipped, spayed, had my dental and bonus HOUSEBROKEN. You just have to guide me to the door, and take me out a couple of times a day.  I prance in the yard like the stunningly beautiful perfect poodle that I am. My only flaw, honestly, is that I’m blind.  But please don’t let that stop you from considering me as an addition to your family. I will show you everyday how big my heart is and how much I am capable of.  I’m an over comer! Please apply at if you are interested in making me part of your family.  I’ll be waiting for my angel.

Jolly 1
Jolly is approximately 10-12 years old.  He completely blind but finds his crate after eating and walking around a little.  He sleeps ALOT, but does like to be in your lap. He is up to date on shots, microchipped, neutered and has had dental, at which time he lost most of his teeth.    I’m so grateful that VIP Rescue saw past my age, my blindness and gave me a chance to know that human touch feels good, a dry warm bed is so nice to sleep in and food every day twice a day. My past was really horrific. Earn your badge of honor by adopting a Senior dog.  Sure no one knows how much time I have left, but just a chance to be loved and safe is all I ask for.  There are several seniors on our site, so if I’m not your forever senior please go to and check us out.  The best love, is the love of a senior dog.

To welcome Jolly to your heart and home please submit your application !

Thanks to Karen at the Mutt Hut for the fresh groom !

Eliza/Myakka City




Eliza Doolittle has lived up to her name. This beautiful girl now barks at visitors at the door, tries to play with other dogs and just wants to be a member of a family who will love her and whom she can love with all of her big heart. She still needs to put on weight, but what lady doesn’t like to hear the words “Time for a treat”?’ Her medical notes say she’s a roughly 12-year-old, apricot, miniature poodle who needs a dental and a spay and who has a heart murmur. What they don’t say is that she’s beautiful, she’s feisty, she loves to walk, be petted and sit on laps, she travels well in a car and  is quiet when she needs to be, yet playful when she’s encouraged. And the biggest and best thing they don’t say: She’s as sweet as she is beautiful – maybe even sweeter. She is current on her shots , micro chipped, heartworm negative, and spayed.
